I like Micks advice.

But if you already have a Jack plate that can always come up, you might want to drop 2 holes on the motor mount.

And if the hull will trim the nose down with the trim tabs up and the Permatrim down, I would lose the tabs. The 4 blade prop will want to lift the stern pushing the bow down so it sounds like trim down is covered.

But if she runs bow light and trim down is a problem, take off the spacer and leave the tabs. Small boats love trim tabs as long as their angle is not excessive acting like a brake.

You want to change one thing at a time.
